Grab brekky at foureightfive in Surry Hills, then wander down Crown St towards Darlinghurst. Nice shops and things to see... Keep walking down Crown St through Woolloomoolloo and then up to the Gallery of NSW, take a look inside... Once you're done, head in to the domain, and down to Mrs Macquaries chair, all the way around the bay towards the Opera House... if you've done it right that should be about 3-4 hours and you'll be ready for a cool refreshing drink at the Opera Bar
